Bill Bowers - It goes without saying

Bill Bowers PosterIT GOES WITHOUT SAYING
A NEW MIME SHOW PRESENTED BY XAVIERA HOLLANDER

NOVEMBER 8TH AND 9TH, 2014 THE HAGUE  SHOWTIME  19.30 HRS.

A passionate student and educator, Bowers studied with the legendary Marcel Marceau.

Today, the opportunity to make the ancient art form of mime accessible to a contemporary
audience drives his professional artistry. Bowers is a mime who also talks, deftly interspersing
narrative with stunning visual portraits. He marries classical aspects with contemporary
sound effects and music, poses present-day considerations through physical tapestries,
and invites a wholly transformative look at the humor, pain and beauty of our humanity
through simplicity and grace.

Xaviera Hollander herself has, during the Fringe festival in Edinburgh, immensely enjoyed this excellent show, which has been hailed by New York Times as "the most talented American Mime of this generation"

About the actor

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING is an autobiographical solo play that takes the audience on a scenic tour of Bowers life and career, from growing up gay to outrageous survival jobs to the whirlwind of working on Broadway. In addition to the journey of becoming an artist IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING chronicles the experience of surviving the AIDS crisis in New York City and the silence that existed within his experience of caring for and losing his partner to AIDS.

It goes without sayingReviews

"Brilliant writing, profound and riveting stories!"

Scotsman

"To watch Bill Towers is to see the technical elements of a style that brings Marcel Marceau readily to mind, joined to the American West. Mime can be wonderful - the air between him and us is his palette."

The New York Times
